A unique class that is part book group, part painting inspiration, with a little critique & celebrate in the mix. Each week, read an assigned section of “The Art Spirit” by Robert Henri. Then, spend time online discussing the reading and the potential ways for Henri’s theories to inspire your own painting or study. Use the week between classes to paint a study and to read the next section. The following week, we will share what we’ve made, followed by a discussion of the next section of the book and ideas for the next week’s painting/study.
**This book has no chapters. For 6/25, read through approx. page 33 (depending on your edition) – up to “Letter to the Class, Art Students League, 1916.” Full reading assignments and class outline will be emailed upon registration.
